More than 1,000 applicants to enter Tucuman National University (UNT) medical school today underwent mandatory evaluation in person after waiting for nearly a year, as the exam was suspended in 2020 due to the pandemic.
“The experience was positive and we appreciate the patience of the students and their families who waited many months to complete this procedure,” said Matteo Martinez, Dean of the College of Medicine.
Students were deployed at the facilities of Caja Popular Clubs and Central Córdoba, a few meters away in the capital of Tucuman, and had to adhere to a series of precautions to avoid the spread of the Coronavirus.
Although there were initially approximately 1,500 young people registered, Martinez noted that this number had decreased and just over 1,000 when they were subjected to the assessment.
Although there are no entry quotas in the medical profession, only those who score 60 points out of a total of 100 will be able to attend the first year.
“This experience is important because it will allow us to implement the same procedure in March, when the registrars come this year,” Martinez said. (Telam)
